The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced that $45 million is available for projects to advance habitat restoration and climate priorities of tribes and underserved communities.

According to information from the NOAA website, “$20 million is specifically available to U.S. federally recognized tribes, Alaska Native Corporations, and organizations that represent tribes through formal legal agreements, through direct awards or subawards.”

The remainder will support opportunities for tribes and underserved communities to engage in coastal habitat restoration activities through capacity building and science support.

NOAA is therefore accepting proposals with a federal funding request between $75,000 and $3 million until Dec. 19. 

The projects selected through this opportunity will span various types of activities, including capacity building, actionable science support, and restoration.
